Illustrated by Pat Nietupski
Legends of Fomora follows Baeve and her friend, Aengus, as they search for a terrible monster. Along the way, they find that the magic that flows through this world is deeper and more mysterious than they thought, and they will have to trust in each other, and themselves, to overcome their many obstacles. There are lots of monsters foe Baeve to fight, and Aengus uses his magic and potions ability to help her in any way he can. There are mysterious forces at work that are influencing Fomora, and the friends must battle it all together.

This wholesome adventure story has some really wonderful main characters, and some fantastic bits of humor. Baeve is a headstrong hunter on the surface, but she suffers from self-doubt and second-guessing just like most people. Aengus is a bit of a blundering tag-along, and he brings out the best in Baeve and helps her out in true side-kick fashion. This book would be great for upper-elementary and middle school audiences, especially for fans of Lumberjanes and other feel-good adventure stories.
Pat Nietupski's illustrations are very reminiscent of Teen Titans Go with a dash of Adventure Time. The characters have extremely expressive facial features for it being a rather simplistic art style. The coloring is pure and beautiful; things that seem luminescent feel that way on the page through carefully selected shades.
